A Tribute for the female paddlers of the world.

Imagine a women’s-specific kayak that weighs an easy-to-handle 38 pounds, tracks smoothly through the water, and provides plenty of room to stay comfortable. Then check out the Perception Women’s Tribute 10.0 Kayak. Perception slimmed the Tribute down for a lady’s size but still kept this kayak wide enough for stable paddling. Thigh braces keep the gunnels from digging into your legs and adjustable foot braces plus a comfortable seat make day-long tours enjoyable. Stash snacks or an extra layer in the stern hatch and use the front bungees to secure a waterproof map.

I hit the jackpot. I am a female and am able to lift carry and maneuver this 38# 10 foot kayak on my own. This is a huge plus for me which means I can use it whenever I like as opposed to waiting for my husband to be home.
It arrived in mint condition, has a comfy built in seat and is the most beautiful blue. I have bilateral knee replacements and have no problem getting in...the width is good. I love this kayak for use in the river and marshes near my home

Light, Easy to Manage

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this boat because it is easy to lift and carry, and because it fits inside my minivan, eliminating the need for a rack. I am a 5'1" flatwater paddler as and find this boat easy to turn and maneuver. I have to work harder to keep up with the 12' - 14' boats preferred by the other members of my paddling club, however the fact that I can carry this boat by myself and simply slide it into my vehicle makes it worth it.

Comfortable but shallow

It's very low profile. Very comfortable, plenty of leg room and the seat is adjustable. The only complaint I have which did not occur to me when I tested it out in the show room; it is very shallow which can cause a fast running river to fill it up in a hurry. However I am an amateur and that most likely made a difference. For someone starting out, you might want to stick to a deeper compartment.

Perception Tribute Kayak

I love my Perception Tribute 10.0 kayak. It is very comfortable and easy to handle. The seat adjusts easily and so do the pegs that your feet rest on. I haven't found one thing that I don't like about this kayak.

Responded on

I agree, the foot pegs adjust easily as does the seat. The seat is also very comfortable. Not much storage room in the cockpit, so I stash my water bottle in the front bungee cords.

What is the better kayak for agility and enjoyment, 10 or 12 foot??

This is a personal preference which you will receive different answers to, but I'll go on record as saying I love 12' boats. I don't have the space or money for 2 boats and I like to do a mixture of open water and rivers. 12 footers work nicely for this because they are still agile, but track well enough for open water. I find that 10' boats tend to wander too much for my taste, but if you're only paddling rivers and around the beach at your favorite campground's lake, then this might be ok for you. A lot of people will tell you that a 12' boat will never move as fast as a 14' boat, but I have never met anyone who can outpaddle me in mine..... soooooooooo blah blah blah ;) My vote is 12!

(I should also point out that hull design plays a major factor in speed and maneuverability! Flat bottoms will be agile, sharp keel lines give you speed and will keep you going straight. Chines, Skegs, rudders, etc etc)

I hope this helps!

Wendy, I have a 10ft boat which I chose because it is light weight and fits inside my vehicle. It is easy to turn and maneuver. However I have to work harder to keep up with the 12' and 14' boats preferred by the other members of my Kayak Club. A 10ft boat will not go as fast as a longer boat.

Is the "Stern Hatch" an "enclosed" dry area - is there a Bulkhead, or is it simply an "open area" with a "cover"?
